Hyundai has launched Aura, the so-called next-gen Xcent, in India at a starting price of Rs 5.80 lakh. The car will be sold in petrol, CNG and diesel variants and comes in 12 different combination options, with the top diesel variant (1.2D-AMT SX+) costing Rs 9.24 lakh. If the experts are to be believed, the Aura was launched as the next generation Hyundai Xcent, with a new compact design that is better than the ongoing model in almost every aspect.

Some of the top design changes one might notice include a longer wheelbase, a wider overall design (with more cabin space), among other things. The sedan also gets a revamped list of new equipment along with BS6-compliance for all its variants.

Let’s now take a look at some of the design, engine and other features of the new Hyundai Aura.

The highlight of the new Hyundai sedan is the brand-first BS6-compliant diesel engine, which utilises Lean NOx Trap (LNT) and diesel particulate filters (DPF). The new 75hp/190Nm, 1.2-litre three-cylinder diesel unit will be soon made available in the first series of sedan ready to go on sale by April 2020. The petrol variant comes with a 83hp, 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, same as the Grand i10 Nios. Both engine variants will be offered in 5-speed AMT and Manual options. The CNG variant of the Aura comes with a 1.2-litre engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, offering 69hp of power and 95Nm of torque. There is also a 1.0-litre three-cylinder, 5-speed manual turbo-petrol engine that produces 100hp power at 172Nm of peak torque.

In terms of interior design, the new Aura seems remarkably similar to the Nios. Some of the interior things including the dashboard, controls, seats and switchgear are the same as the hatchback. The sedan, however, comes with a few new instruments, including a 5.3-inch digital instrument cluster, wireless charging, a rear centre armrest, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system integrated with Hyundai’s iBlue audio remote smartphone application and enabled with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and paired to an Arkamys sound system, a cooled glovebox, and a driver rearview monitor.

Another thing to note here is that Hyundai is offering new, optional warranty packages, including three years/1 lakh kilometres, four years/50,000km and five years/40,000km options, under its Wonder Warranty plan, which also comes with roadside assistance for all plans. Even though the bookings for the new Hyundai Aura have already been started on the official website, deliveries may be delayed until April 2020 because of the limited BS6 fuel availability.
